Prototype Pollution in JavaScript
In 2018, a new attack vector against JavaScript codebases has been published: Prototype Pollution.

Can You Change the Behavior of a Running Node.js Process From the Outside?
In this talk, we will have fun trying to tamper with a running Node.js process to change its behavior at runtime. Without changing the code or restarting the process, we will find a way to inject our own logic into it and start to do the things we want. What are the limitations of such an approach? Is there part of it that can be used in real life scenarios? Come and find out! Yes, there will be some live demo.
